Prejudice, one of the worst things in real life, and of course the same applies to the IT world.
So after a lot of years in which I almost exclusively worked with RedHat I'm back at SuSe, SLES9 to be specific.
Ok, installing Oracle is something I do every day but when I found out that there is no such thing as /etc/sysctl.conf in SuSe I thought "Yes, this is the reason for not using this flavour." .
But then I found the orarun.rpm (http://ftp.novell.com/partners/oracle/sles-9/); installed it, ran it - and voila: everything was set.
So today's lesson will be: Just the facts - prejudice will trouble your mind.
